The first one was taken this morning. It’s from the thermometer in my vehicle, showing -12 degrees. The local weather station says the wind chill is -25.
The second one is my cell phone camera taken yesterday about noon. Conditions in my area weren’t nearly as bad as they were out on the open highway or interstate, but there was still a lot of blowing snow and drifting snow.
By sundown last night it was about -20 wind chill, and most events that were scheduled for the evening were cancelled. By about 9:00 pm last night, the local weather station said it was -28 wind chill.
I don’t know about you, but I must be looking for Al Gore’s mythical global warming in all the wrong places. Here in western South Dakota, we’re just not finding a whole lot to get heated up about.
